We were crossing roads, looking outside.
Far away we went.
Silence is happiness.
Growing happiness.
The fire on the mountains.
We are still driving.
We couldn't say goodbye.
We were driving through fire.
The flowers were sad.
The stars were sad.
The guide was dizzy.
The shadow of the fire was misleading.
My eyes couldn't stop looking at the fire.
My house was distant.
My house didn't catch on fire luckily.
We stopped.
We looked outside.
There was a horse drinking water.
We sang a song, a song so loud,
That the horse got mad and ran away.
Nobody could turn off the fire,
Not even the heavy rain.
We would never go back from were we departed.
But you shouldn't think we had a one way ticket to hell.
We avoided hell.
The stars provided some light consolation.
Nobody knew how.
We couldn't fall asleep.
When we got back in the car we realized we had forgotten something.
The shadows of the wind.
Forgetting something was a death sentence at the time.
So we started to try to recall what we had forgotten.
Luckily the Judge was far away from us.
Had he known that we had forgotten something!
What a scandal!
Anyhow, we couldn't recall anything.
We were walking on a rope.
The world was on fire!
Departing from the road was dangerous.
We had to stay concentrated.
The Judge arrived, suddenly.
He told us: Tell us something!
We said: We forgot everything!
He applied the death sentence,
With no right to appeal.
For something we forgot? We said.
He walked away.
